Review:

I love this movie. It’s in my top ten favorites. I’m pretty sure I like it more than the first Matrix movie. The last forty-five minutes are jam packed with some amazing action scenes. My favorite is the scene where Neo fights all the bad asses in the palace on the mountain. Some great shots and great action. The highway scene is just as good with the ghost twins providing new enemy abilities.

The CG is dated and occasionally looks pretty bad, but they don’t focus on it for long periods and the way its shot helps mask the shortcomings.

I remember getting out of school and rushing to the theater to see this. I had been blown away by the first and I devoured anything I could find about the sequels before they came out. I was not disappointed by this film and it hurts my heart that people actively hate this movie.

Oh well. I enjoyed watching it again and plan on re-watching Revolutions soon.

5/5
